This morning I finished the painting of the beagle by softening some shadow edges, adding some more shadows and layers, plus a border.
These dog drawing and painting examples were all done in 15 minute sessions. I think I may have come up with a method that works well for me to get more artwork completed. I seem to be able to find 15 minute chunks of time in my day and can accomplish enough in in each session, even though its not a big chunk of time.
If you happen to be around this weekend I am teaching a workshop in my home studio called "The 15 Minute Drawing and Painting Workshop and I have room for a few more students. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to attend.
